Pretty sure its not factory, but still pretty cool. My main clue is that there is art on the back. Im not aware of any cg's with that.

Re: S540 UCGR???

I have not heard of anything other than RGs being available for most people, but they did do graphics on other guitars (Warrant, Batten...).

It looks very right for the era. Buy it!

I have my eye on that as well. I'm intrigued, I hope the winner will pull the neck and post pictures of the neck pocket.

Re: S540 UCGR???

I (stupidly) put a pretty high bid on another guitar right before seeing this one. I'm gonna keep a watch on it though.

@Fast: There were actually quite a few UCGR's that were painted all the way around.

I no longer have PayPal active, if I did, I would be very much following that one.

It's possible to retract your bid on ebay Ryc.

My bad if there is, but other than the fabric ones like the silver pea**** or whatever, I couldn't recall any. Im sure there are many here that know better than I.

Re: S540 UCGR???

someone here has a "falling rocks", and someone else has an "Unraveled Consciousness" that are painted on both sides. I know there are a few others too, but for the most part your right. Most graphics are only on the front.

Re: S540 UCGR???

I think it's just a custom painted '88 540S. The maple board is a bit "loved" but the paintwork looks cool and the guitar looks to be in fantastic shape overall. The current $455 BIN price is kind of a steal if you like that graphic. You wouldn't get that guitar for a whole ton less with a factory finish.

Re: S540 UCGR???

I am surprised it did not sell regardless of who painted it. The paint looks well done and with a maple fretboard $400 is a great deal. I sent an email to him to ask about the paint and will let you know if he responds.

Well his response was quick but....

I asked "Who Painted this. It looks great but I am not sure if this is an Ibanez custom paint job. Do you have any documentation authenticating the paint?"

He responded "It Came This Way."

Re: S540 UCGR???

I actually think I have seen this graphic before, but I am not sure if it was on this guitar or not because I am always looking for older Sabers.
